A lady identified as Jumoke Kehinde has allegedly committed suicide in her apartment at the Kajola area of Akure , Ondo State, after she was suspended from work for resuming late last Thursday .
The lifeless body of the 23-year – old lady , who worked at a popular shopping mall in Akure , was said to have been found in her room after she allegedly took a substance suspected to be an insecticide .
A manager in the organisation , who gave his name simply as Taiwo , confirmed the incident and said the deceased along with some other staff members was suspended for reporting late to work last Thursday , but expressed surprise that Jumoke could take her own life .
He said , “ On that day, she was seen arranging her table getting ready for the day’ s sales as she appeared happy , but she later left the mall around 11am after receiving the suspension letter .
“ Around 4 pm , a distress call was received in the office that she was not feeling fine . One of the management staff went to check on her . Jumoke was found on the floor of her room shivering , while her mouth smelled of the insecticide .
No empty can of the substance was found anywhere as she was rushed to hospital .
After some time at the hospital, she was pronounced dead . ”
A colleague of the deceased , who pleaded anonymity , said after Jumoke was given the suspension letter , she went back home but never showed any sign that she would commit suicide.
He said , “Her mother called her but she couldn ’ t say anything and was just crying on the phone .
The mother kept calling her line but later could not get through again ; so , she sent someone to check on her .
The person found her on the floor writhing in pain .
We had to quickly call the office and rushed her to hospital.
“ We all know that when you come late here, you will be suspended for a few days without payment .
But I don’ t see any reason why such an issue should make her commit suicide. ”
